    I occasionally download films using bittorrents. I have noticed that
    some of them (and I think it seems to be Avi's) worked fine at first
    then after a few weeks stopped loading into Win Media player. They
    appear to freeze at the start and usually crash the player. Films
    downloaded a couple of years ago still work fine. Why would this be
    and anybody any theories and or cure? Could the more recent films -
    late 2007 onwards have a self destruct protection in them when they
    are more than a few weeks old?

    Why not do the decent thing and buy the DVD?
